Mageshot

Post by Halvor » Sat Jun 09, 2018 7:19 pm

Is there a list with descriptions of all the kinds of mageshot available in published materials? I have found 5 types of mageshot to date. My favorite being the one that makes it snow on the target ship.

I don't recall ever seeing a list, but if you already know where five types are, we could start a list here now. :D

Where did you see those mageshot types? And what was each one called?

If I only had my books with me. (I'm at work.) I have a full Spelljammer collection that seriously needs a good dusting. :)

I vaguely recall mageshot, but for some reason, my mind keeps snapping back to "Elfdart" with Sean Connery's face... :lol:

That's already nine.

I wonder if you have covered all the five that Halvor was talking about.

Did Hackjammer include any new types of Mageshot?

Brilliant!

I wonder if there are any homebrew versions of Mageshot.

Krynnspace should really have Dragon Shot, that attacks dragons in the same way that Dragonlances do.

Solinari Shot, Lunitari Shot and Nuitari Shot that do a variable amount of damage, based on the phases of Krynn's moons could be fun. You could add in the Moon Phase and Moon Alignment modifiers from the Moons of Krynn: Moon Tracking Chart and get Mageshot that does different amounts of extra Hull Points at different times.
